Rosabell Richardson Moore was born to Thomas Richardson and Emma Vining Richardson on October 3, 1907. As her life flowered and bloomed married to Mr. Eddie Jackson, Sr., and to this union was born one son Rev. Eddie Jackson. She later married Alvin Moore.

Mother Moore, as she was fondly called was converted and baptized at the age of 12 by the late Bishop S. Lazard. Her church life was the continuous mainstay of her life and she became a member of Gordon Church of God in Christ pastored by Rev. E.C. Pounds.

With love, she then united in fellowship with "The Whole Truth Church of God in Christ" New Orleans, La., with her son as her pastor. She served as Church Mother and  President of the Bible Band. Her examples of the fruits of the Spirit; love, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith and meekness will endear for ever to all those who were blessed to come in contact with her.
